Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This book is an awsome book. The author does a great job of having each chapter a single story to it but they all lead up to the end and play a role into the solution!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Childhood Favorite The Railway Children has been my favorite book for years. As a child, I was enthralled by the story, and even now, there are few books I'd rather read. I had not picked up this gem to read in a long time, but just last week, I read it again, and was reminded of why it is my favorite book.
